Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic (Deutsche Grammophon). In January of 2006, I made it my business (literally) to be in Los Angeles for the first performance to be recorded live at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
We can live with the current album by GORILLAZ, Demon Days (Virgin). At least there are real artists behind this fake band - er, "virtual hip-hop group." Here, Damon Albarn, once again taking a Blurman's holiday, replaces Dan the Automator with Danger Mouse, he of The Grey Album.
